Life is funny, I’ve had my difficulties as a public servant due to my race and sexuality but I am actually quite proud of receiving this as it is for my dedication to public service – which is quite humbling.
I have no doubt that My Mum Annie Maxwell will be VERY proud, as she was when I became a public servant way back in 2001 and as a cadet in two different organisations before that. She adored Her Majesty.
Some things you can change, but one thing I cannot is being born in Britain (Royal Liverpool, that is) and being British.
This has been a… proud occasion, ‘View from the Bottom’.
Enjoy The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, Max x.
Live Healthy, Laugh Often & Love Yourself!
